In that same year the SB’s recorded a 45 at Nesman studios, Wichita Falls, which had “Blue Moon Of Kentucky” on side A, backed with “Wishing” on side B.

1990 continued with the 1st full length LP recorded live at their favorite venue in Wichita Falls. It was at a jazz club owned by World War 2 fighter pilot Frank Goff, appropriately called “Frank's Place.” The SB’s first album was named “Live at Frank's Place & featured all cover songs. Vinyl only.

The next couple of years were spent mostly touring, but time was made for another LP release; “Surfing the Air Waves” featuring original and cover surf instros. DAT only. There were also 2 videos released which gained a lot of airplay including MTV. 1992

1993 “Live in the Van with the Sprague Brothers”  was a cassette only full length LP featuring such classics as “the Light Bulb song” & “Mexcellent”

The next couple of years were spent touring and Frank devoted time to his Classical composing. His first string quartet was performed and received high critical acclaim.

There were several studios used to record the first hightone album “Let the Chicks Fall Where They May” recorded in ’96 -’98 and finally released in 1999 CD & vinyl.

Then in 2001 the SB’s recorded their 3rd LP for hightone, aptly named “Three”, which was not released until the SB’s returned from their first tour of Japan, & wound up being put out on the EssBee label, due to hightones lack of interest in rock’n’roll.
